The top NT student for 2017 is Nisangi Wijesinghe from Darwin High School with an ATAR of 99.80 and university aggregate of 88.30. The top Aboriginal student for 2017 was Johvan Miles from Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic College in Alice Springs.
Nisangi said she was excitedly surprised to be the highest achieving student in the NT.
“I was really happy and surprised when I got my results this morning,” she said.
“I want to go to university to study medicine, potentially at Monash University in Melbourne of the University of New South Wales, so we will just have to wait and see what happens.’’
Eight students in the Northern Territory received an ATAR in the top 1% in Australia.
This is the seventh year of the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training, with the number of completers increasing every year.
